| Untitled Auction/eBay Scam on Yahoo, ref:5010I place an order with this company for a Samsung galaxy note 10.1 N8000 with 64gb\' price at $400.00 USD, which I sent a Western Union Money Transfer ($420.00 Dollars) to a Jeffrey Alvarado located in the Union Kingdom. The address on the website is: 64 Great Wilson Street, City: Afford, State: Hertfordshire, Zip code: WD19 5BG\' Country: United Kingdom.I transfer the money on 9 September 2012. On Monday 10 September 2012, at approximately 10:40 am, the subject (I believe to be an african) called me from the following number 17067058888 and stated that his boss will not ship one item and that I needed to add at least four more computer tablets.Which I refuse and order the subject to cancel the order and refund me my money. He said the money had been use to pay for shipping and could not been refunded. I instructed the subject to return my money because I was not going to send money for nothing more. The subject email about 8 to 9 times to sent more money\' once again I refunded, etc. At about 1700 hours the subject email me again trying to get me to reconsider on sending $220.00 dollars to pay for tax / vat. I refund again. He stated, my money could not be return because it was used to pay for shipping. I informed the subject that I wanted my money refunded because shipping was between him and the alleged shipping company and that it had nothing to do with money I sent for a computer. I have not heard from the subject again.|
